Chrome helps Mozilla

by geniefreak / November 24, 2008 9:15 PM PST

You said on the podcast that the Mozilla is doing very well despite the release of Chrome. Could it be that Google's ad for their browser on their homepage (THE most used page on the internet by far)made OE only users realise that other browsers were available - and once they evaluated Chrome decided to see if there were other alternatives... only to find Firefox........... etc.

I doubt it

But I'm sure it helps webkit, safari for windows is a pretty poor port.
Webkit, note is an apple open source project, chrome is a better UI for it than apples own.

Can any Chrome user tell me why it refuses to load so many

pages (many of them mainstream pages like CNN.com)? Usually its links that bring up the white page with a notice that this page can not be loaded. It happens a lot when I click on an article headline in Google Reader as well. If I copy and paste the failed address into Safari for Windows or Firefox the page loads without issue so its got to be the browser.

I really WANT to love Chrome because its so darn fast but this page loading issue is a huge problem. I reset all the options to their default settings thinking I may have changed a setting that was causing this to happen but its still behaving this way.

Is this just a bug that happens to everyone or is it setting that I am overlooking.?

The only way to make it better is to help out!

If you find a bug in Chrome, make it better by telling someone who can do something about it!

http://code.google.com/p/chromium/issues/entry

that is the link to submit bugs and you can actually get feedback from developers. It isn't like submitting a but to microsoft where you wonder if anyone even got it.

Good luck. Viva La Chrome!
